Faith, Hope & Love 5 – Red Jasper – This necklace set is part of my Faith, Hope & Love Collection, where the centerpiece of each necklace is a beautiful semi-precious stone cross. This cross is Red Jasper, which gets its rusty red color from iron inclusions. Each necklace in my Faith, Hope & Love Collection fastens with a sterling silver clasp.
Red Jasper is an opaque version of quartz with a vitreous luster that comes from the iron inclusions. Daring, delicate and the dreamiest shade of red, Red Jasper is one of those stones that screams energy right down to its very core.
The sterling heart clasp is handmade in an Israeli kibbutz which specializes in sterling silver jewelry components. If you want to find out more about the history of Israeli kibbutzim, you can read more here: https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/history-and-overview-of-the-kibbutz-movement
In metaphysics, Jasper has been used since ancient times for healing. It’s known as the “supreme nurturer”, and sustains and supports through times of stress, and brings tranquility and wholeness. Jasper provides protection and absorbs negative energy. It was also a favored stone of warriors setting out into battle, those who needed strong healing properties and a blood connection on the battlefield.
According to Viking legend, Siegfried the Dragon Slayer had his magic sword inlaid with Red Jasper to give him the courage to destroy monsters. It is also said in the Bible that this stone adorned the breastplate of Aaron, the first high priest.
